Total Fire Bans

A Total Fire Ban is imposed as a risk based prevention measure to restrict activities and reduce the likelihood of ignition in bushland/vegetation and increase awareness in the wider community on the day the ban is declared. A Total Fire Ban may be declared when fires are most likely to threaten lives and property due to adverse weather conditions or when widespread fires are stretching firefighting resources.

Total Fire Bans affect everyone, whether you live near bush or in a built up area. Department of Fire and Emergency Services (DFES) warn you of a day of predicted adverse fire weather. On these days lighting of open air fires or any other activity in the open air that is likely to cause a fire is banned. All Fire Permits are revoked. 

Check the Emergency WA website for current status and after 4pm to see if a ban has been declared for the next day.

Total Fire Bans relate to the Department of Fire and Emergency Services (DFES), they are the agency that declares these through the Minister. There are a number of activities that you cannot do on a Total Fire Ban day

IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY AS A PROPERTY OWNER OR RESIDENT TO BE AWARE OF ANY BANS IN PLACE.
